Individuals who work in tool hire jobs play an important role all through the year, giving professionals and members of the public alike the chance to get hold of the right tool for the job, without having to pay the full purchase price to own it for themselves.
But in the run-up to Christmas, the Hire Association Europe has been collecting stories of how people working in tool hire jobs have truly come to the rescue, in order to allow the seasonal celebration to go ahead when plans might otherwise have been interrupted.
For instance, the HAE asked whether any of its members have ever been drafted in by their local council to help with the switching-on of the Christmas lights.
Alternatively, the association suggested that tool hire providers might have been called in to help with the creation of a Santa's grotto at a Christmas market "in the middle of nowhere".
As of the start of December the real-life members' stories have not yet been published by the HAE, but they are likely to appear closer to Christmas itself.
In the meantime, tool hire providers will once again be busy in the run-up to Christmas, making sure last-minute festivities are able to go ahead without a hitch.
